Call For Papers

The WPU Interdisciplinary Conference seeks to advance collaborative and interconnective understanding on a variety of topics. With a sense of a renewed interest, or perhaps a more mainstreamed acceptance of, the horror genre in American culture, we thought it exciting for this annual conference to focus on an exploration of the macabre, malevolent, and mysterious. It is our hope that you will join us in bringing together knowledge from diverse disciplines to further the scholarship being done on the myriad of concepts falling within this theme.

Exciting examples include early 20th century demonic sound in music, First Amendment rights for the Satanic Temple, music theory utilized in Wiccan spellcraft, designing spooky environments for virtual worlds, mapping haunted tours of Raleigh, and the historical significance of Dracula.

We welcome proposals for paper presentations, demonstrations, and interactive workshops, which meaningfully explore the macabre, malevolent, and mysterious. Educators, graduate students, scholars, and professionals in all disciplines are encouraged to submit.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Our keynote speaker this year will be Dr. Brendan Jamal Thornton, a religion professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill whose numerous publications and popular collegiate courses center on concepts of evil, supernaturalism, and spirit possession.
